Seltzer is responsible for leading the firm’s work on behalf of plaintiffs in some of the country’s most significant class action suits, such as In re Auto Parts Antitrust Litigation, in which settlements have exceeded $1.2 billion to date. Seltzer is a senior member of the firm’s trial team that serves as court-appointed co-lead counsel in a consolidated antitrust class action arising out of the LIBOR-rate fixing scandal. To date, the litigation has resulted in recoveries for the class he represents of $590 million. Seltzer is also serving as co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs in the MDL In re National Football League’s “Sunday Ticket” Antitrust Litigation where he successfully argued an appeal before the Ninth Circuit that resulted in a major decision in favor of his clients.
